    Hi Fibber, Can you give me the coords of the location you are speaking of? And yes, the lake has a very curious shoreline in that much of it seems to be floating vegetation and I don't think GoogleEarth quite knows what to do with it. It you notice the pictures I posted of the jetty, in the earlier images the jetty it well out past the shoreline but as time goes by the T-bone at the end is the only part still freely in the water. Thanks! MR

    Wow. Dave. This is a mystery well worth delving into. I spent a good deal of time early this morning trying to pinpoint this location. There just doesn't seem to be anything down in what the title box calls SW Celebes that matches up. There is a Limboeng over in the SW corner of Borneo. But the terrain around it doesn't look anything like this. The only airfield of note, that I am aware of down in that part of Celebes was/is in the SW corner of Sulawesi (Celebes) at Makassar. And the jumbled-up terrain around and east of Makassar certainly looks like it could contain this set up of runways some where. I am wondering if perhaps theis complex of airstrips sits today under the runways and taxiways of Hasanuddin airport up NE of town? It would definitely be a great build. I have Makassar...

    Not at all outside the bell-curve of probability. The area was bombed, by both sides, during the war. Don't suppose you found any sign of the danged concrete seaplane jetty? ;^) I posted a comment to Olive, the lady whose site it is, asking her to please identify just where along the perimeter of the lake the seaplane jetty is located. Hope I hear back from her. Thanks for digging Fibber, I appreciate it., MR

    Yes. Apprently this base too, while serving as an actual civilian stop before the war was actually nothing more than the jetty, a workshop and a place for flight crews to take a naps and refuel their planes. It was never a staging location for large operations. Although at the time of the Japanese attack on Manado, there were those six Do-24 flying recon flights from the "base". MR

    Hey guys, Stockplane noticed a problem with the Polish campaign which highlighted an issue with the library objects from the BoB package, the GSL RAF buildings by gary20, and the TAF bgl update by Pen32Win.

    Hi Fibber, Thanks for posting those links! I have visited both of them HOWEVER for some reason I had not picked up on the hint . I will now redouble my efforts looking in that corner of the lake. Excellent! Although it is noteworthy that the little "town" of Kakas is actually at the SE corner of the lake Plus the views in those photos make me think that it is on the SE side. We shall see, I hope! The picture of the jetty with the guy walking on the left is from a personal blog site and she, the blogger, took the picture. I think I will email her and see if she can tell me just where on the lake it is located. He also says in his blog posting that "There is also a bunker and a munitions dump just across the road" which leads me to believe that there is a road running right along...

    Success or failure often depends on what version of MDLC is being used. I find that MDLC117 seems to give the best chances, though it can sometimes leave g_lightstate errors behind that need to be removed with a hex editor. MDLC190 often gives me "conversion unsuccessful" messages, so I pasted in MDLC117 instead & it runs OK. Misson, Peperez, which version of MDLC are you using with Morten's GUI?

    My install is already set up months ago and I forgot the sequence. I am helping a friend install his IL2-1946. Do any of you know specifically which patches are needed. I have a bunch of IL2 patched in my archive but do not remember which ones are for the 1946 variant. I see links here, in this forum for 4.09, 4.10 and 4.101. Aren't there more? Thanks SW07 :wavey:

    When doing scenery, I copy and paste the .sca to the same folder as the SCASM and then drag and drop the .sca file onto the SCASM utility to create the new .bgl.

    Bearcat241, Fibber and Kelticheart, Thanks very much guys. I'll play around with them. BTW, I finished the rework of the Rhumba-mesh-mask-dedicated DEI airfields- I believe these were in the 2008 and 2009 packs- and have moved onto the Japanese/Dutch airfields on Sulawesi (Celebes). I have not made the pack available to the general-population but if anyone is interested let me know and I'll send you along what there is. I am currently working on the the Langoan area of NE Sulawesi. Its is a grand location for an airfield. I've had fun doping out where the old runway was located. After reading through some fascinating personal journal excerpts and such I was able to pick out the location of the old runway in Google Earth. It has gone entirely back to rice paddies and...
